to anti-war democrats but lost a lot of republican support. now while president obama's next potential secretary of defense is being hailed by some precisely because his views do fall outside the mainstream, many others are saying that chuck hagel's views on israel and iran and his previous comments on gay rights are completely out of touch. so while the likelihood of john kerry receiving app unanimous confirmation vote in the senator, the decision to float hagel for the pentagon is having the opposite effect. >> i think this will be a very tough confirmation process. >> a lot of republicans are asking hard questions and i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i think it would be a challenging nomination. >> in another distress signal for the white house, the former vietnam vet and nebraska senator was unable to secure the backing of the number three democrat in the senate. >> that's his choice. i think once he makes it, his record will be studied carefully, but until that point, i think we're not going to know what's going to happen. >> can you support him? >> i'd have
